A charming and energetic invitation to the pleasures of the Christmas season in one of the world's most exciting cities. As with her The Inside-Outside Book of New York City, Munro has chosen locations and scenes that capture the essence of New York: the Macy's Thanksgiving Day parade, Park Avenue lights, Christmas icons like the Medieval Court Christmas Tree in the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Lord & Taylor's windows and the wreathed lions at the entrance to the public library. From a panoramic cover view of Rockefeller Center's famous Christmas tree, to a behind-the-scenes glimpse of the lighted Times Square apple, ready to usher in the New Year for the crowds below, Munro's paintings are magic and memorable. All ages. (October)
